Re: Problem with 6505+ 112 combo

Good to see that you have it up and running again. My current amps mostly date back to the mid '90s and I have yet to experience issues with any filter caps. I will definitely keep those in mind should I experience a similar issue. I know most parts are inexpensive, but I am a fan of trying to ident...

Re: The FIRENZA Thread!

The neck is a single conductor pickup and may be the stock neck pickup. I'll wait for one of the Peavey guitar gurus to chime in on this. You won't be able to split it or put the coils in parallel as is. If you have a meter you can get the DC Resistance of the neck pickup which *might* confirm your ...

Re: The FIRENZA Thread!

Photos Attached of my "new" Firenza. I've concluded the previous owner removed the Superswitch and Peavey Pickups and I intend to try to return it to it's original state. I tried to contact Peavey Parts as I also need a Tremolo Arm but I haven't been able to reach them. Any suggestions on how to id...

Re: Reviving A C20 Combo

Yes Cincy, I still have both of my C20's. I have updated my signature link pics to note the amps I've sold, but I may have picked up a couple that I have not added yet. :mrgreen:

Re: Peavey Classic 20 - Combo

I am not sure how I missed this one and I am confident you have sorted it out by now. But for future searches, if it is only dirt you can use baby wipes to clean the chrome control panel. They are water based and will not harm the silk screened numbers on the control panel. Here is a link to my C20 ...

Re: Noisy JSX Ultra Channel V2 Recommended V2 12ax7

I love my JSX 212 combo and I should've acquired it much sooner than I did. I just wish it didn't weigh like a battleship. If you do determine this issue is a noisy tube, I have had good luck with the Tung Sol 12AX7 being a low noise tube. Regarding general JSX questions, if you haven't seen it yet,...

Re: Problem with 6505+ 112 combo

Yes, you are correct and my apology. I had asked a similar question, on another forum, and was working off my memory when I replied to this. That schematic is on an older desktop I don't often use, but I should have fired it up and confirmed what I was thinking. Now doing that I see I asked to confi...

Re: some of the most versitile peavey amps around.

I'm going with, in no particular order, my JSX, Penta, Vypyr VIP 3, Bandit 112 and XXL. I love the Clean channel of my Triple XXX, but the JSX wins due to the wider difference in tones between the Crunch and Ultra channels.

Re: Grease for repacking pots? Silver Stripe Bandit

I've used Deoxit F5 to get some lubricant back into pots. That's typically enough. In the past I haven't used any grease.

Please check on your schematic. My schematic is showing a 3A fuse for 230V. It shows a 2A fuse for 120V.

Re: My 94 predator pics with upgrades

Very cool! It's always good to see older gear that's still getting played. I still play thru my '95 Classic 50 410.

What amp(s) do you play it thru and how do you like the Hot Rail in there?

If you create a new 6534+ preset using a different bank, does the new preset exhibit the 1-2 second whoosh?

Re: Please help! Signal bleed at zero volume - Classic 30

Just to clarify, this only occurs when you are sending a signal into the input? Right. And plugging anything into the effects return interrupts the signal. I’ve discovered after a bit more tinkering that the amp only exhibits the signal at “zero” volume problem intermittently. When I power on the a...

You are on 230V AC power and not 120V?
